How to Watch College Gymnastics in 2023

It’s that time again! Time to get your seasonal streaming service subscriptions turned on and ready for January 6 and the first vault of the year.

This year, we compiled the most salient information into a graphic, which is followed by notes about other conferences and teams with independent viewing options. As was true last year, a number of headline meets appear on Disney’s family of networks, which are also outlined below the graphic. International fans can scroll to the bottom for viewing information.

As always, be sure to check our master schedule for the most up-to-date information, including meet cancellations or coverage changes if applicable.

In short, this year we recommend that fans who wish to have access to all major networks carrying gymnastics meets subscribe to Vidgo Plus with standalone Big Ten Plus and ESPN+ subscriptions if desired. Sooner fans, don’t forget two Oklahoma meets will be on SoonerVision on ESPN+ this season (which can be accessed with the regular ESPN+ subscription).

If you are a Pac-12 or SEC fan and don’t intend to watch BTN, you should consider Sling Orange with Sports Extra, to save about $9 per month. Big Ten fans who do not wish to watch either the Pac-12 Network or SEC Network should consider Sling Blue with Sports Extra to save about $9 per month.

The Add-Ons


Cost: $9.99/mo*

Previously, ESPN+ was exclusively an add-on service. This year, it’s still an add-on, but it is also included in the Hulu Live TV bundle. No other streaming service includes ESPN+. Keep in mind that two Oklahoma meets not carried on ESPN’s main properties will be on SoonerVision on ESPN+ this season.

Big Ten Plus

Cost: $14.95/mo*

Fans who only wish to watch one school’s competitions can choose a “school pass” for $9.95/mo*. Big Ten Plus still inexplicably does not offer a discounted gymnastics-only sports pass. However, we’ve found that purchasing three months of the service is cheaper than a sports-specific pass anyway.

*All prices subject to change. Additional taxes and fees may apply.

  1. Thank you for compiling this list together. I wish I had it two weeks ago when I cut cable and made the switch to streaming. I had to do my own research LOL!

    Just as an FYI, it is actually cheaper not to go with FUBO Elite (which you named here as FUBO TV Extra) for $79.99.

    Just order FUBO TV Pro at $69.99 and then go into the add-ons and you can add on FUBO TV extra for $7.99 =$77.98. It is not a super huge savings, but it does add up to $24 a year.

    I did this because the Elite, while adding the sports channels I wanted, also adds 11 news stations. I had no interest in any of these news stations, so the add-on feature made more sense.

    I just made the switch from cable to FUBO and am saving $100 a month now than cable with more sports channels than before.

    However, the downside is that FUBO can sometimes buffer and sometimes the voice synch is off, which is corrected by backing out of the show and then resuming it.

    1. Great info! Thanks for sharing! We’ll definitely add this into the article so folks can know it’s an alternative option.

  2. Thank you so much for this valuable information! Do you know if any of these services allow you to watch the meets whenever rather than just watching them live? I work during many of the meet times so I’m wondering if it’s worth it to pay for the streaming services if they’re not available after the meet occurs. Thanks!

    1. Theoretically, any of the streaming platform logins should work to watch replays on the ESPN app, for example. Sling definitely does but Fubo has been hit or miss with watching replays through the channel platforms. However, there are a handful of subscriptions—like Hulu Live, Fubo, and Youtube TV—that have DVR capabilities, so you could record the meets you want to watch in advance. Hope this helps!

    1. So far, based on what we’ve been able to gather, session one will be on some Pac-12 Networks property, sessions two and four on Big Ten Network and session three up in the air, although we’ve heard it will be on BTN as well. More info should be released in the next day or so!

  3. Thanks for all the information! How can I watch college gymnastics in Germany? Is the only possibility to watch it on ESPN Player or is there another one? And can I watch it on ESPN or do I have to buy ESPN+?

    1. It depends on what you want to watch. ESPN Player will have the meets that air on a “real” channel, but you’ll have to get ESPN+ if you want to get those additional streaming ones that are only there (it’s separate from ESPN Player as far as we know). For Pac-12 meets, you should be able to watch the Pac-12 International stream on YouTube for free.
